Handing in my ears...

I'm going to work for Microsoft. What's My Job? I will be working on building out content for docs.microsoft.com, specifically ASP.NET Core and probably other things... Disney For the last 4 years I have had the opportunity to work with some very talented people building great products. Most notably I was a part of the Disney Cruise Line Navigator mobile project where I served as the lead architect and developed the mobile services to support the mobile applications (iOS, Android) and recently the complete revamp of DisneyCruiseLine.com bringing in new architecture, technology stacks and process change to teams.

Thank you dotnetconf 2016

Had a great time presenting at dotnetconf, even with the A/C broken a the house. Appreciate the comments and feedback. Although this was not super sexy new stuff, it is a real business case and a question I get asked more often than you think..."How do I connect ASP.NET Core to WCF or even node.js to SOAP Services". When I started looking at the issue a few weeks ago, there was very little documented, which is why I wanted to put the talk and demo out there. Code is available at http://github.com/spboyer/dotnetconf2016...

When I use to read Golf Magazine (a long time ago), there was an interesting column called "What's in My Bag?" that profiled a professional player's equipment. It was an interesting read into what they carried and why they chose what club for what purpose. I am around a lot of developers here and there, and as we all know; we are very particular about the machine (when we can be), the editors or IDE, the add-ins, command line tools, stickers and sometimes even the bag we put all of this in. Here is a list of the toys and tools that I choose to carry and use. Machine I have many machines in the computer graveyard in the garage,...
